News: White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Tuesday that he sees LaRoche playing about two games a week at first base next season, ESPNChicago.com reports. Impact: LaRoche is a former Gold Glove winner at first base and clearly has an edge over Jose Abreu, defensively, but the White Sox don't want to penalize Abreu after his AL Rookie of the Year campaign by taking away his defensive responsibilities. Thus, LaRoche will serve primarily as the DH, Ventura clarified, likely only seeing in the range of 50-60 games at first in 2015.(RotoWire, )

News: LaRoche has agreed to a two-year, $25 million contract with the Chicago White Sox. Impact: The White Sox have AL Rookie of the Year Jose Abreu entrenched at first base, so LaRoche is likely to see most of his time at designated hitter. He has spent almost his entire career in the National League, save for six games for Boston in 2009. LaRoche gives the White Sox some sorely needed power from the left side. He hit .259 with 26 homers and 92 RBIs in 140 games this year for NL East champion Washington. (STATS, 11:41pm)
